Avoid Clash of Clans: Save time and money

After Candy Crush, the world is still enjoying one of the most popular and stategic game, Clash of Clans. Specially, youths are much more facinated by this game.This is addicative game where people play for years and years. Looking at this, the government of Iran has officially banned the game there.

Last week, a flurry of reports came in about the decision made by the Attorney General in Iran, Dr. Abdolsamad Khoramabadi, to ban Supercell’s Clash of Clans, after his office received the recommendation by the Committee for Determining Instances of Criminal Content. The content was determined by psychologists in the country to be a highly negative influence on the people of the Islamic Republic, particularly its youth.

The precedent is alarming to the gamer community in Iran who fear it’s just the beginning of a larger clampdown that will extend to include similar games, as well as other categories aside from mobile strategy. There have already been reports of players experiencing connection problems when playing Clash Royale, another enormously popular mobile title by Supercell in Iran.

Outraged by this verdict toward arguably one of the most popular mobile games in the country, the gamer community in Iran responded by rallying together with a concerted plea directed to theInstagram page of Mahmoud Vaezi, the minister of communications. If you’re wondering “why Instagram?” it so happens to be the most popular – and unblocked – social media site in the country.

Iran has an estimated 5.5 million Clash of Clans players in Iran, and they represent a significant portion of the 80 million living there — and they know it. Many of the complaints posed to Vaezi often struck a political chord as a means to appeal to the current administration and have them reject the plan to block the game.

“If Rouhani’s government can’t lift the ban for Clash of Clans, next year we won’t participate in the election!” is an example of the kind of comments that were made on major news websites likeKhabar Online.

The campaign appears to have worked as Vaezi announced in an Instagram post that he would work to remedy the situation. This followed with a photo posted by Vaezi alongside President Rouhani affirming that he would follow through with his promise. Other authorities like the head ofESRA, the rating agency for software in Iran, followed suit in kind.

“It’s true that the Committee decided to filter Clash of Clans, but as I promised all of you, I had a talk today with President Rouhani and I hope soon that we can solve the problem.” Vaezi posted on his Instagram page.

It’s key to point out that while committees like this one make decisions like banning a game or website, the actual execution of the ban is made by the government.
